1. Sandhole Oak Barn, Cheshire

This oak-beamed barn is as beautiful on the outside as it is when you step inside the charming, light-filled space. Perched on the shore of a private lake, summer weddings are seriously special here when you say “I do” alfresco beneath the Oak Clock Tower with the lake as your backdrop.

3. Gaynes Park, Essex

For a combination of city and country, look no further than Gaynes Park. You can enjoy views of the London skyline while surrounded by 1,000 acres of countryside. Tie the knot in the Orangery and your walk down the aisle will take you through the delightful Walled Gardens before stepping into the ceremony room. For a humanist ceremony or blessing, why not get married in the gardens themselves?
